Exploring Blavatsky's Theosophy using the tools
Tibetan Sources - by Richard Taylor. Shows that many elements of
Blavatsky's Theosophy can be found in Tibetan Buddhism - in both relatively
esoteric and relatively exoteric sources - but not available to western
students or scholarship in her time. This conclusion adds substantial validation
to her claims concerning her trans-himalayan sources.

subject by Richard Taylor.]
A CALL FOR CONSIDERED OPINION. The above preliminary
thesis by Rich Taylor has occasioned considerable controvery in the Theosophical
internet community. Understandably so. At the same time it offers positive
new points on H.P. Blavatsky. My hope is that we can advance the cause
of truth here and elsewhere by a joining of opinion on the subjects covered.
Rich may find it useful to incorporate some of the remarks made here
into his final thesis, either generally, or verbatim with permission. So
each speaker may have wider influence - for better or worse - beyond this
I might add for Rich that he hopes for a consideration of the whole contribution
of his thesis, and not just the controversial points. However, anyone may
limit their comments as they choose.
We hope the considered opinion - pro or con - published here will advance
our understanding of the truth. [RC]
transpersonal model of death as presented
in Madame Blavatsky's Theosophy - by Dr Jean-Louis Siémons.
Demonstates that the details and broad aspects of the near death experience,
as discovered in the later 20th century, were previously described, and
asserted to be true, by H. P. Blavatsky and W.Q. Judge, a century earlier.
